What I Do

For years Rupert has enabled clients to successfully launch over 350 eCommerce websites, many with very complex API integrations.

In the unlikely event that Rupert doesn’t know the answer to a eCommerce related question, rest-assured he won’t rest until he finds out.

A Little More.

What made you apply for a job with 5874?

I founded the company!

What's your favourite thing about working here?

The people and their constant drive for improvement. They never settle for second best, professionally or personally.

In your role, what do you most enjoy and what area do you feel you excel in?

Helping our clients succeed and our team grow and thrive - combined they are a dangerous combination for success.

What would you say is your favourite project you've worked on?

There are so many! It would be unkind to choose a favourite. Highlights would be Johnnie Walker in Spain, Loacker or Peter Christian.

Where do you see yourself career-wise in 5 years?

Working with the fabulous 58 team to turn 58 into one of the World's best commerce agencies!

Who or what inspires you?

Opportunity and choice.  Life and the world is an amazing thing and we are presented with opportunity and choices everyday.

Tell us a bit about your pets (if you have any!)

Matilda - the inspiration behind the digital spaniel - not sure I need to say more than that!

Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family and any hobbies

I'm 41 and I live with my wife, our two kids and Matilda, the world's best spaniel. Love to play cricket, and I used to play some rugby. Also enjoy skiing and I'm passionate about the environment. What I hate is bad time keeping and disorder.
